Evaluation: Acquired by Bill Turnbull in 1954 in New Zealand. First owned by Miss E.G. Gardner (later Mrs. E.G. Williams) in 1914. Subsequent owners are documented to Bill Turnbull. Restoration began in 1997, completed in 1998. Thoroughly documented and developed over years by Bill Turnbull for reliability and performance. Paint and brightwork are dull. The upholstery is sound but creased from use. Good wood trim, windshield frame, and dashboard. A charming and usable old car with an exceptional history.
Bottom Line: It’s not Brighton Run eligible, nor does it have a competition history. What it does have is a remarkable provenance, the charm of its diminutive form and the quality of early 20th century French automobiles which led the world in their design innovation and exquisite manufacturing. This is a great little car with a charming history that will give its new owner satisfaction with both the car and the price paid for it.
